Yeah, thats right. There was to many changes between these two versions.

Do I need to completely uninstall XAMPP 1.7.1 and then install 1.7.2 fresh and redo all my settings and configuration?
Is there any other issues I need to be aware of to do this?
You had to do a complete fresh install of XAMPP. Because the changes between 1.7.2 and 1.7.3 are not so big, i recommend you to do a fresh install directly with XAMPP 1.7.3. You can simply install the zip version byside your existing XAMPP 1.7.1 on your HDD. You can't start both together, but that should be okay for now.
After that you had to bring your configuration changes step by step to the new install.
After that copy your scripts to the new installation.
Then export your Databases from the old MySQL and import them in your new one again.
Check your scripts! Because of the new PHP version there is maybe some work to do.
